Senator Oluremi Tinubu, the wife of the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, said contrary to the popular belief that her husband and his family was wealthy, they are not super rich as many thought.
The lawmaker who stated this is on Thursday, during a town hall meeting with People Living With Disabilities in Abuja, revealed that she has now resolved to begging to because of her family’s financial deficit.
According to her, she recently begged the wife of her husband’s running mate, Hajia Nana Shettima, for N2 million.
“When they say he has the money of the world, I just wonder. Mrs Shettima knows that I begged her just to give me N2m yesterday,” she said.
She also disclosed that her husband’s benevolence was the reason behind his popularity and not money.
Tinubu said, “Asiwaju’s secret is not about money, contrary to what people think, he is a very compassionate man and very generous. There is nothing he can’t give.”
“I remember after he finished as governor, we used to have this staff at home; if you needed anything, he would say go and meet so and so―that is who he is.
“The people you see in rallies are not after money. They believe someone can give them hope in these trying times.”
